André was originally just a normal [[Red Lum]] living in [[the Fairy Council]]. However, one peaceful night, when [[Rayman]] and [[Globox]] were sleeping, the dreaming [[Rayman]]'s hands detached themselves from [[Rayman]] and wandered off, performing various shadow puppets to a [[Red Lum]], growing from simple, relaxing ones to evil, scary ones. The [[Red Lum ]] was frightened so much that it transformed into André, a [[Black Lum]] that desired world domination.
[[File:Mains Baladeuses 2.jpg|thumb|320px|left|After being frightened by the shadow of the hands of [[Rayman]], this [[Red LumsLum]] becomes André the [[Black LumsLum]].]]
André started by transforming most of the [[Red Lum]]s into [[Black Lum]]s like himself. However, the [[Black Lums Lum]]s he created were not as powerful as him; they could not talk, were less intelligent, could not corrupt other [[Red Lums Lum]]s and did not have arms. The [[Black Lums Lum]]s began stealing fur from animals like [[Bonton]]s and used it to weave potato-sack costumes for themselves, becoming the [[Hoodlum]] army. André became the first [[Hoodlum]], a [[Hoodmonger]].
After becoming a [[Hoodlum]], André pursued a frightened [[Murfy]] throughout [[The Fairy Council|the Council]]. [[Murfy ]] found [[Rayman]] and [[Globox]] sleeping at a tree, and tried to wake them up as André came closer and closer. [[Globox]]'s attempts to snatch up the sleeping [[Rayman ]] and bring him to safety resulted in him running away in fear with [[Rayman]]'s hands. [[Murfy ]] grabbed [[Rayman ]] by the hair and flew away with him.[[File:André2.png|thumb|Artwork of André.]][[File:André.jpg|thumb|Artwork of André.]]
While travelling through [[File:André2the Fairy Council]], [[Rayman]] and [[Murfy]] soon found André again, and [[Murfy]] distracted him while [[Rayman]] beat him up.png|thumbWith his [[Hoodmonger]] costume destroyed, André reverted to being a [[Black Lum]], and revealed his plans to corrupt [[the Heart of the World]] itself, converting its energy into an army of [[Hoodlum]]s. He then flew off in the direction of [[The Heart of the World|the Heart]]'s chamber. [[Rayman]] and [[Murfy]] pursued him so that they might prevent this calamity from occurring. Once Andréwas in sight of the door leading to [[the Heart of the World]], he rushed for it, and accidentally flew straight into [[Globox]]'s mouth and was swallowed.

==Trivia==
* With the intention of finding a weird name for the character, the scenarist David Neiss gave it its final name a year before the official release of the game.<ref>''[[L'Histoire de Rayman]]'', Chapter 4 - Rayman 3 : Hoodlum Havoc, Rayman without Michel Ancel</ref>
* When ''[[Rayman Raving Rabbids]]'' was intended to be the fourth installment in [[Rayman (series)|the series]], [[Michel Ancel]] confirmed during an interview that "[[Rayman]] will have to save the world, [[Rayman's girlfriend|his girlfriend]] and the girlfriend of his old enemy and his old enemy too!" It was confirmed that the 'old enemy' with whom [[Rayman]] would have to join forces was André, presumably meaning that [[Rayman]] must also rescue André's girlfriend. If the game would have not been cancelled, André would have been the first villain in [[Rayman (series)|the series]] to have join forces with [[Rayman]].
* During a cutscene in ''[[Rayman 3]]'', André makes a reference to ''the Legend Of Zelda'' in which he says to a [[fairy]] "Buzz off, fairy, Zelda needs you!"
* André is the first villain in the main series who has been a main antagonist in more than one game (''[[Rayman 3]]'' and ''[[Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge]]'').
